Breaking up Bad Habit
What is a habit?
Habit is an action performed repeatedly and automatically, usually without awareness.
We all have habits different types , many of them are unique. Habits that are harmless are not necessarily the ones we must be concerned with, but the harmful habits need to be broken and replaced with good ones.
God offers each of us a great life we must renew our minds and learn to think on purpose if we want to experience all He has planned for us.
Bad habits are not broken simply because we want to break some bad habit such as Swearing, Picking Your Nose, Biting Fingernails etc.; we must break them on purpose and that will require diligence and determination. Referring to the bible, David said that the man who wants to prosper and succeed needs to habitually ponder and meditate on God’s word day and night psalm 1:2-3. With enough discipline and consistency, we can break bad habits and new ones can be formed.
When you breaking apart with your old habit, look for a better habit that is good that can get your mind off that old bad habit and defiantly you can get tempted to want to go back to the old habit you might even miss it but this is the time to set your mind and keep it set in your new decision and because you don’t want to remain in bondage to the old and miss the good new things god has for you.
In the new Testament, Paul writes that we must habitually put to death the devil deeds prompted by the body if we want to truly and genuinely live Roman 8;13. He is simply saying that we must learn to recognize what is not Gods will and therefore not good for us and we must habitually say no.
